Notes from 2011 -- Pours a dark amber with almost no head, had a reddish hue to it. Candi Sugar dominates initial whiff which fades to malt and grape sweetness. Initial dull malt flavor that gives way to complex malt, grape, citrus sweetness. Has a slight by distinct flavor throughout. Enjoyable to drink. Wouldn’t bode well in large quantities as the sweetness that makes it a good beer would overwhelm. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUN 13, 2010
I always anxiously wait for the Rejewvenator release every year. No noticeable grape flavors but maybe a slight dryness because of the grape. Aroma Belgium hefeweissen. Slight Belgium character and a more traditional doppelbock dominance. Always let the Rejewvenator beers warm up before you drink them. This one doesn’t have the sweetness that the other two have. Rather dry really. As always with the Rejewvenator an interesting experience. robertjm (898) - Albany, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Not frothy, slightly tan head. Holds well with bubbles that remind me of a oatmeal stout. Body is a dark red color when held up to light. Aroma reminds me of walking through a dank dark wine barrel cellar in Napa Valley! Yes, there is some malty aroma, but the grapyness is definitely there. Flavor is akin to a fine Belgian trappist ale. I would’ve expected it to have that unique concord grape flavor, but it doesn’t. Nice hoppy finish on the palate. Great job! (but Concord grape is NOT what I’d consider a sacred species LOL!) Syzzer (736) - Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Grape flavor discernible, very unique and delicious. Interesting. Carmel color... more Belgian than Bock DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Orange-tinted red with half a finger of off-white lacing. Medium aromas of candied plum/prune. Off-white light lacing. Average-Plus carbonation. A well-balanced palate that is a bit sweet. The grapes are evident on the palate, as well as the candied plum and berry. I like this beer a lot more than I expected to.

Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack Eatery this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sweet with notes of grape, cola, raisin, caramel and pine nuts. The flavor was tart and bitter with a fruity hop presence and notes of grape, raisin, caramel and nut. The finish was long, sweet and a bit hoppy Fairly full bodied. Very nice. Cybercat (6143) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours a beautiful dark clear copper-mahogany with a substantial, if not long-lasting, pale tan head. Aroma is rich and malty with hints of hops and an undertone of red wine. Mouth-filling malty flavor has yeasty and grape hints as well as a bit of hoppy bitterness and a subtle barleywine-like nip. Texture is smooth with a nice little fizz that leaves behind a subtle tingle. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On tap at Urge. Dark hazy reddish orange amber with a creamy tan head. Caramel grape and white wine aroma with light cola notes. Tastes of grain caramel more red wine flavors than the nose suggests and a tangy lightly sour finish with some sweet apple notes on the back end.

Pours a hazy deep copper with a short-lived dense tan head. The nose is richly malty with notes of jew grape (Maneschewitz), toffee, caramel, and fig jam. Very little hop aroma, if any. The flavour is exactly what the aroma suggests. It is rich, full-bodied and gently carbonated, without feeling to slick. If not for the hint of clove spice, this is very similar to a good dunkle wiezen. The finish is mostly grape, sweet toffee and one of the best aromatic noble hop flavours I’ve come across. There’s a ton of residual sweetness to to cover up the 8.2%abv. Nice! GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 28, 2010

Another great beer from He’Brew. Rich dark malts, light Concord grape juice notes, molasses, slightly spicy actually. Molasses and raisin puree play nicely with the grape juice addition. Tootsie Rolls, caramel, and spice cake also show up along with what seems like a Belgian yeast note that keeps taking me back to Maudite.
